Saint Francis Hospital
The Saint Francis Hospital Trauma Emergency Center (TEC) and Patient Tower Addition handle trauma and critical care cases so it was important to Page that the interiors be as soothing as possible while remaining respectful of the activity taking place.
The Interiors team designed an inviting and dynamic front public entry and lobby to the existing hospital and replaced the original hospital chapel and convent. The design reflects sustainability and patient-centered care throughout.
By creating the new main entry with a chapel that is immediately accessible and highly visible from the exterior, this expansion seeks to engage visitors, patients and staff, and truly embraces a patient-centric environment.
The new lobby attaches directly to the new tower and to the west wing, formerly the tallest tower on the campus. Paying respect to the history of Saint Francis Hospital, portions of the west wing’s Italian pink modular façade remain intact, while the new, spacious atrium lobby with its structural glass-curtain wall adds a modern appearance that is welcoming and spiritually uplifting, and reflects the high-quality care and technology that lies within the hospital.
In the new patient care tower, rooms were designed to allow maximum patient visibility, expansive views and daylighting, with ultimate flexibility in patient environments.
